Dealership giant MarineMax said it acquired the only on-water, full-service marina and retail facility in Fort Myers, Fla.

MarineMax is also building a new service center that will serve southwest Florida. The public is invited to a groundbreaking ceremony at 4 p.m. on Feb. 7.

“MarineMax Fort Myers at Deep Lagoon is much more than a retail center for premium boat brands. Yes, we have built our business by selling and servicing premium-brand boats, but we are also a tremendous resource for the area’s dynamic boating community,” MarineMax Fort Myers store manager Ryan West said in a statement.

MarineMax Fort Myers at Deep Lagoon offers 75 well-engineered wet slips, dry storage, an on-site fuel dock, a 75-ton travel lift that can accommodate boats larger than 70 feet and easy access to the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Okeechobee Waterway.

“When finished, our up-to-date service center will provide world-class service to local boaters in a world-class facility,” West said. “Our reputation hinges on our ability to sustain long-term relationships with our clients. We are extremely pleased to broaden our capacity to deliver on our commitment.”

MarineMax Fort Myers at Deep Lagoon is at 14070 McGregor Boulevard. MarineMax encourages those who attend the groundbreaking to arrive in advance for cocktails and a christening ceremony that will start at sunset.
